Build Grow-Boxes Out of Cement Blocks?

Q. Do you have any information that would discourage using cement blocks to build the grow boxes?

A. Nothing serious. They take up aisle space, cost more than wood, and are more work to install because you need to secure each block – either by mortoring them together or with a Rebar stake.

On the positive side, they look good and will last indefinitely without being subject to deterioration that is common to wooden boxes.
